Dimple surgery (Dimpleplasty) is a minimally invasive procedure. Therefore, most people are good candidates for dimple surgery as long as they are healthy!
Like for all cosmetic surgeries, the first requirement to be eligible for a dimple surgery is being healthy. If you are healthy, meaning you don’t have any condition that may impair healing after the surgery, there is no obstacle for your surgery. The second requirement is that you have realistic expectations. You should understand the procedure and its expected results.
The dimple surgery provides the best results for people with a firm and elastic skin. In case of cheek and chin dimples, having a plenty of volume in your cheeks or chin is an advantage.
The outcomes of dimple surgery can be analyzed in two main categories: aesthetical and psychological.
Dimple surgery, when performed by an experienced and talented plastic surgeon provides completely natural results. Your dimples will look as if you always had them! Obviously, the only aesthetical outcome of this procedure is that you will have dimples! There are three kinds of dimple surgery. So, you will have cheek dimples, a chin dimple, or a Venus dimple, depending on your choice. All of these dimples are considered as an element of beauty. Also, in case of cheek and chin implants, the procedure is performed through incisions made inside the mouth. Therefore, not even a small visible scar is left.
Of course, not having dimples is not a reason for psychological distress. However, they are considered beautiful by most people. If you are considering having this procedure, you like them, too. So, having dimples can boost your self-confidence and enhance your self-image.
Dimple surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed to create dimples on cheeks, chin, and back.
Like all kinds of surgery, dimple surgeries require anesthesia. Dimple surgery is typically done with local anesthesia. Sedation can be used in combination with local anesthesia. However, if your dimple surgery is performed in combination with another surgery, general anesthesia may be required.
The essence of dimple surgeries is creating dimples on cheeks, chin, or lower back. The resulting dimples are permanent. (If required, the process can be reversed, but the result may not match the pre-operation appearance.) Dimple surgeries are minimally invasive surgeries. All three of them takes less than 1 hour to complete.
Using these methods of dimple surgeries for dimples are quite effective with the right surgeons.
After numbing your cheeks with a local anesthetic, your surgeon will make a small incision on the inner surface of your cheek. They will remove a small amount of tissue and connect your cheek muscle to the skin of the cheek from the inside, using dissolvable sutures. *2 Same steps will be followed on your other cheek. The muscle will be permanently connected to the skin after the sutures dissolve. Therefore, your dimple will have a fixed position and will appear only when you smile.
After numbing the area, the surgeon will make a small incision inside the mouth.*3 They will attach a small area of the muscle to the skin of the chin from the inside, using dissolvable sutures.
Your lower back area will be numbed using local anesthesia. Your surgeon will remove an appropriate amount of excess fat from the area and create and indentation using dissolvable sutures.
The dimple surgery is usually an extremely safe procedure. In rare cases, complications and risks can happen, which include:
Dimple surgeries are minimally invasive surgeries. Consequently, the recovery is quick and relatively comfortable.
It is normal to experience a little swelling and bruising after the surgery. Most of the swelling will be gone in a few days.
The pain and discomfort will be minimal. Pain can be easily controlled by pain medication, but you may not even need to take them.
Also, most people have a few days off work because swelling will be prominent just after the procedure.
After the surgery, you can immediately return to most activities, but you should avoid vigorous exercise for at least 2 weeks. In case of cheek or chin dimple surgeries, keeping the mouth clean is especially important, since the procedure is performed inside the mouth. Your surgeon will explain how to use the necessary antibiotic mouthwash. Right after the surgery, your dimples will be highly prominent because of swelling, but it will change in time. There will be dressing on your Venus dimple after the surgery. This dressing will be changed a few days after the procedure.
A week after the procedure, we will expect you in our clinic for your follow-up examination. You will be feeling much better by then. Most bruising resolves in two to three weeks. Two months after the procedure, the swelling will be resolved, and the final result of your dimple surgery will be apparent, and your cheek dimples will be visible only when you smile. Until then, they will be visible even when you don’t smile.
A wellbeing assistant will visit you in your hotel room every day during the first week after the surgery. We will expect you to be in our clinic for your post-op examination 1 week after the surgery, before you leave Istanbul. We will still follow your recovery process while you are away. Clineca will provide you with complete support and inform you about everything you need to know during your recovery. We will be with you from your consultation to the very end of your recovery.
“Dimples are technically flaws, but they are not harmful and most of us find them beautiful. Dimple surgery, when done right, creates dimples they look completely natural.”
During your online consultation, your surgeon will ask you questions about your medical history. It is of critical importance that you give your doctor every detail, from the conditions you might have to the operations you had in the past, to the medications and supplements you use, to minimize the risks the surgery could bring. They will also conduct a physical examination. Your surgeon will inform you about everything you need to know before the surgery. Clineca will provide you with complete guidance and support before your surgery. You will have a complete and detailed list of instructions.
Most important instructions include,
What you need to do after the surgery will be explained to you in detail by your surgeon, and Clineca will provide you with all the support and guidance you need. Most important instructions include:
